Press Release – Incident 09 October 2018

The National Institute for the Deaf (NID) can confirm that a case of homicide and suicide are currently being investigated, after an incident on Tuesday morning at the ladies hostel of their training unit. The residence was locked at the time according to standard safety procedures. In the early hours of the morning, a man (23) allegedly gained access to the building by breaking the window of the hostel’s relaxation room. He then proceeded to a female student’s room. He took the woman’s life (21) by stabbing her multiple times and then took his own life. He also posed as an immediate threat to the five other women in the room.

The man was also a student at NID Training, but recently left the campus after disciplinary procedures. He was allegedly visiting a friend in Worcester for the weekend. The motive for the murder is still unknown, but it appears to be about their relationship which recently ended.

Both of their families have been notified. Staff and students at NID Training are in the process of receiving trauma counselling. The NID campus community is shocked by the incident and our sincere condolences with the family and friends of the two people who lost their lives.

For more information, contact Mr Cobus van Deventer on 023 342 5555 or email to nid@nid.org.za

________________________________________________________________________________

Die Nasionale Instituut vir Dowes (NID) kan bevestig dat ‘n saak van moord en selfmoord tans deur die polisie ondersoek word, na ‘n insident op Dinsdagoggend, 09 Oktober 2018 by hul opleidingseenheid se dameskoshuis. Die koshuis was volgens normale veiligheidsprosedures gesluit. Na bewering het ‘n man (23) in die vroeë oggendure toegang tot die gebou verkry deur die venster van die dameskoshuis se ontspanningslokaal te breek en so toegang tot ‘n damesstudent se kamer verkry. Hy het die meisie (21) se lewe geneem deur haar verskeie meswonde toe te dien en daarna ook sy eie lewe geneem. Hy was ook ‘n bedreiging vir die vyf ander dames in die kamer.

Die man was ‘n student by NID Opleiding, maar het onlangs die kampus verlaat na dissiplinêre prosesse wat gevolg is. Hy het na bewering die naweek by ‘n vriend in Worcester kom kuier. Die motief vir die moord is nog onbekend, maar spruit skynbaar oor hul verhouding wat verbreek is.

Beide se ouers is reeds in kennis gestel en personeel en mede-studente by die opleidingseenheid ontvang reeds traumaberading. Ons NID kampusgemeenskap is geskok deur die insident en ons harte gaan uit na die familie en vriende van die twee persone wat hul lewens verloor het.

Vir enige navrae, kontak Mnr Cobus van Deventer by 023 342 5555 of e-pos na nid@nid.org.za
